Products - FLORIM

Florim’s porcelain is a material with high technical and aesthetic components. The porcelain is made by blending raw natural materials together, which, thanks also to the contemporary technologies of high-definition digital printing, can truthfully reproduce all kinds of surfaces and materials. The production process of the porcelain uses mechanical manufacturing techniques, and physical / chemical reactions – where Florim’s know-how is the essential piece of the complicated puzzle in producing the super high quality product.
